PiperJet stands alone among other VLJs. When designing especially lightweight jets, aircraft designers prefer to supply them with two motors. As experience of use shows, it is much safer and more reliable. But more expensive. The company NewPiperAircraft went their own way, offering a variant of the jet with a single engine. The challenge to the designers was very difficult - to reduce the cost and cost of operation.

The announced price of PiperJet, which is designed for five passengers - 2,2 million dollars. In the VLJ market, only a modest one is cheaper Eclipse 500.

Piper Jet has a single turbofan engine, which is mounted on the tail, and it is a guarantee of security in the destruction. Modern avionics system takes on board the aircraft in place. Jet has very small dimensions: length - 10,29m, and height - 5,03m.

Despite the affordable price, PiperJet has a toilet room - it's really a luxury for particularly light jets, where every extra centimeter of the saloon is a special achievement. Now, among manufacturers, a real "toilet war" is being deployed. Smaller planes that are not equipped with a toilet, only in the United States each year make several thousands of unplanned landings due to the fact that suddenly "prispichilo" passenger. The first VLJs were designed without taking into account these statistics. In them, at best, a toilet was provided, which disguised itself as a spare seat in the tail of the cabin. Separated from the main compartment with a curtain in the literal sense. How to use it in flight, it's hard to imagine.

Piper Jet plan to certify for control with the help of one pilot.
